Celebrate!


I celebrated my birthday Sunday so I thought I would share this cheery birthday card I made- I told my husband he could sign it and give it to me..LOL The cupcake image comes from one of my favorite new sets from the Serendipity Magalogue- Little Cupcake This entire set is so fun! I was excited when I first saw it thinking of all the possible ways to color the images. For this card I colored the cupcake with Tombow markers- using the copic techniques I have read about here and there of laying down the lightest color, adding the darker ones and then blending again with the lightest color. I purposely left the darker color less blended to add shadows and depth to the frosting. I added stickles to the wrapper and a small dot on the cherry. I colored the cherry with a red gelly glaze pen for an embossed look. The flowers and button are from the Hillary embellishemnt jar. The paper is from kaleidascope girlz. I enhanced the design by adding the little dotted circles and dot borders from another new Serendipity set Creative Inspiration- this is another set that I am finding will be very versatile and fun to use! Let me know if you like it! have a great week!
